“I don’t know where else I could sit in a room with 30 languages, all religions represented, and build a community.”

Katie Pham says she has the best job ever. She’s an English teacher for Emily Griffith teaching at Project Worthmore. “I don’t know where else I could sit in a room with 30 languages, all religions represented, and build a community,” she says. 

Before she started teaching English, she constantly bounced around with different jobs. She started working at Project Worthmore in communications, but when they needed help teaching, she started helping out. First she was just teaching one literacy class a week, but she really enjoyed it. So she took TOESL classes and got certified so that she could start teaching full time. 

She’s been teaching English now for 4 years. “And I haven’t gotten sick of it yet!” she says. 

“A lot of people see the immigrant community and think they need to help–need to be the hero,” says Katie. “But the community here [at Project Worthmore] is helping me as much as I am helping them. I’m learning new things from them all the time. They teach me about their food, their community and they make me laugh!” 

She doesn’t have plans to stop teaching any time soon. “I’ve seen this community flourish in so many ways,” says Katie. And she loves being a part of it. “We need to break down these walls and build these up these communities; we are all just people at the end of the day.”
